Maritime Accidents

Whether a boat, a ship, an aircraft or innertube, any injury or death that occurs in or over a navigable waterway may find themselves subject to Maritime law.

Distinctions in Maritime Law can adversely effect the unwary lawyer. It can mean different procedural requirements, it can limit those who may bring a claim or take away certain elements of damages. Avoid a second disaster and call someone who has tried maritime claims.  


Two police officers were seriously hurt when their boat struck a partially submerged piling left in the river by bridge contractors. I was able to prove that they created a foreseeable hazard that caused the allision.  



I have personally tried Maritime Claims to a Jury and have litigated mishaps involving civilian, military, private and civil government vessels before Judges and Juries in the Florida State and Federal Courts.   




If someone you love was fatally or seriously injured in a maritime incident, please call me to discuss it at (904)309-6500.



The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask for free information about my qualifications and experience.
